Fort Collins, Colorado54 contributions50 helpful votes
Finding a 'hidden gem' was just the beginning of a perfect stay! We requested the Bluebell room, and it was not only spacious but featured a sumptuous sunroom adjacent (convenient to our parking spot too). The neighborhood is super-quiet --a surprise, given its Cap Hill location-- no yelping dogs or sirens or loud cars. The king bed had a generous cozy comforter, and the sofabed was comfortable as well. Loved the mini-kitchen with microwave and small fridge. The breakfast was chic, overflowing with fruit, and elegantly presented by Carl and his gracious assistants. I was able to have a peek at the other rooms-- the décor was noteworthy in each, as Carl has overseen a fine establishment in his 23 years here! It's an epic historic home -- come and enjoy!

Property's Favorite Review
I booked my stay at Capital Hill Mansion because all hotels downtown were sold out. Little did I know how lucky I was discovering this hidden gem. Carl and Bailey put their whole heart in this beautiful place and provided the best hospitality a guest can ask for. The room is HUGE and cleaned diligently every day. The best part is that you get to eat cooked home made breakfast everyday (and tastes heavenly).

My wife and I just completed our second visit to Capital Hill Mansion over the holidays and we just love the place. Carl, the owner is wonderful with awesome breakfasts, helpful restaurant tips, and great historical knowledge of this great neighborhood near downtown Denver. We loved our room with jacuzzi tub, fireplace, small living room and the mansion was lit up for the holidays. We won't hesitate to come back soon.

This was perfect place to stay with friends, and explore places and events around Denver. Close to downtown, in a very walk-able tree-lined quiet neighborhood. Carl, the owner, and his staff, went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and valued. They (and their breakfasts) are the best!

This is not our first bed-and-breakfast, stay, but our best by far. Carl, who is the owner and chef created not only a place to lay your head, but a feeling of communal familiarity with our fellow borders. Staff we met Ray and Corey very friendly and helpful. Extremely clean overall and rooms very comfortable and fun. We enjoyed waking to the smell of bacon and eagerly awaited what we would have for breakfast. Evenings at 5 where wine was served in the parlor was a treat after a long day of sightseeing. We also found that when coming home later in the evening the wine was still on the davenport so we could sit out on porch and have a glass of wine before bed. Eclectic neighborhood of various architecture has a very young professional vibe. Great restaurants in walking distance. Definitely worth a visit!

Amazing experience. I took Amtrak through the mountains. It was easy to get to the mansion. So historically proper, wonderful clean room with all the amenities I had altitude sickness so I did not tour the city, but instead sat on the front porch in a rocking chair and read. So lovely and relaxing. If you do nothing else view the Santa Collection of gourds. Made my day.! Five stars

Thank You Cyndi! It was a pleasure having you here at the Capitol Hill Mansion and glad you got to relax on the front porch. It's one of my favorite spots. I leave a few Gourds out thru out the year because my Aunt Augusta had painted them and over the years I have collected over 70 Santa Gourds... She always did an amazing job! Thank you for noticing and glad you enjoyed her art work! I will see you again and have a wonderful holiday season! Carl

We try to stay at B&B's when we travel and have a list from good to not good. The Capitol Hill Mansion rates a resounding Excellent. Starting with the home which has been restored to its former elegance. Sitting in the living room by the fire you can almost hear the horses & carriages driving by. We stayed in the Bluebell Suite. Quiet, clean and super attention to detail. The breakfasts were outstanding. Eating on the private patio surrounded by beautiful plants was super enjoyable. The breakfast was started w/a huge plate of fresh fruit followed by the best breakfasts we've ever had. I appreciated the pot of French Press coffee at our table every morning. It will be hard to go back to our corn flakes when we get home. The location is very convenient to downtown and restaurants nearby. Carl gave us many choices within walking distance. This place with be a destination for us in the future and not just another place to stay over. Thank you Carl and your staff for a wonderful stop over on our trip.
